Publisher's Summary

Oaths sworn.... Loyalties tested.... Forces collide. It's only been months since Eragon first uttered "brisingr", an ancient-language term for fire. Since then, he's not only learned to create magic with words - he's been challenged to his very core.
Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still, there is more adventure at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.
First is Eragon's oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength - as are the elves and dwarves.
When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices - choices that will take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.
Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

Missing some pages

I've read the hard copy of the book probably twice - now listening from this I think quite a few parts were cut out here and there. The parts that were left out are not major themselves, but still didn't go unnoticed. Aside from that, it was still good stuff.

Good voices and funny too.

Where does Brisingr rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's hard to say, since it's the first audiobook I've ever listened to so far.

Which character – as performed by Kerry Shale – was your favorite?

Honestly? I'd have to say Eragon, as Shale voiced him exactly as I've imagined his voice to be, when I read the book.

Brilliant!

Any additional comments?

My tween daughters and I were skeptical about these audio books as I had read Book 1 and 2 out aloud which we had all enjoyed. But we were pleasantly surprised to find that we all actually preferred the audio books and it also gave me time to join in with crafts while listening. The reader's accents for each character, while at first were surprising, ended up being one of the special parts of the story for us. I would recommend listening to all 4 books in the Inheritance Cycle in audio. Well read, excellent quality and the story is unforgettable!

Super story telling

A well read and superbly written sequel to Earagon. It kept me company on my long runs and at times made me comment audibly as I ran, something I have never done before. I look forward to the next episode.

Dissaponting as is abridged

Is cut to bits. So much of the book is missing. Was very disappointed. It should have mentioned it was in the description
